1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

    Hi all :D I'm new here (but not new to firearms) I've always been into guns since I was a kid :oops:
    I'm from the UK (Worcester to be exact) but now living in France.

    I currently own:

    Marlin 25N .22LR, DIY trigger job and Visiontac 6-24x50AO scope.
    CZ452 .22WMR, Eric Brooks trigger kit, XD optics 6-25x56 Y reticle scope
    Gamo CFX (23 joule/ 17ft/lb ) .177 (4.5mm) fitted with a WWT2 and a Hawke HD 3-9x50AO scope.
    Ardesa Tracker 209 .50 cal, Tasco 6-24x50AO scope
    Stoeger x5 (9.6 joule/ 7ft/lbs ) .177 (4.5mm) This is for my kids.
    Pietta Remington 1858 .44 (cylinders reamed out to 11.5mm to take LEE 220g conicals)
    Pietta Colt 1860 .44
    Gamo P800 .177 pistol
    And finally a nice 185lb compond crossbow.

    I also enjoy casting bullet too for the BP firearms.
    I used to own a really nice customised Ruger 10/22 but I had to sell it when I moved to France :(
    I also used to have a 1942 WW2 Mauser chamberd in 8x60 and a Voere .300 WM rifle (these guns I sold to buy a car, big regret but had no choice at the time)

    I have recently placed an order for another Gamo, this time a Bull Whisper IGT which has only just been released by Gamo (not even on their website yet)
    That should arrive in a couple of weeks.

    I am in the middle of making a 15M (50ft) indoor shooting range which will be ideal for my airguns.

    Sadly I don't get as much time as I'd like due to work and family :(

    Tadpole, ever heard of the F1 track in France called Magny-Cours? I'm not too far from there, more or less right in the center of France. Thankfully gun law is not as bad as UK laws.
